What Is Meant By "Save The Cub"?

This is not a "how to" web site.  If you are looking for information on how to do a particular job please check out www.farmallcub.com.  The folks there have put together a great section that shows you how to do many repairs simply and safely.

 

Save The Cub is intended to showcase the many Farmall Cub tractors that are saved from the scrap pile by anyone who has the desire to put a little time and effort into one.  This site will, hopefully, provide an avenue for collectors, restorers or just your regular neighborhood guy to brag about their pride and joy.

Who am I?

Why do I like Cubs?

I'm just your typical, everyday Tractor fan.  Well okay, it goes a little deeper than that. Want to know more about me?  I will tell you a little about myself here.

 

Shop Time

 

When I'm not working on my barn, or garden or attending a CubFest somewhere around the country, I'll probably be out in the shop with one of the Cubs.  It sure is relaxing working on these whether alone or with a group of friends.

A Little About The Cub!

In 1947 the Farmall Cub was introduced to the American farmer.  This little critter was meant to help the small farmer who relied on horse drawn equipment. 

 

These farmers could not afford, nor did they need, mammoth farm machines to do their work.  The cub fit right in for them since little is what was best to do their job.

 

So it was that McCormick-Farmall created something they never intended - They created today's latest craze - "Cub Collecting".

 

Today, many people around the world, from those with big farms to your neighbor with the 1/3 acre suburban lot, are restoring these little tractors for use in their garden, mow grass, push snow or just to drive in their town's Memorial Day Parade.

 

This site is intended to introduce you not only to the Cub, but also to the men and women dedicated to shedding the blood, sweat and tears involved in bringing the Cub back to life.

 

 

 

Have You Seen Me?

Does your Cub have a dash like this?  If so how about letting us know the year and at least the first three numbers in the serial number.

There is very little information on this type dash and we are trying to determine it's origin. 

Story here.

 

Watch Out Dog!

 

 

My first tractor and pet - September 1954.  "Bo" was my best friend.  He was very protective of the family.  Mom always said my uncle would act like he was going to get me just so he could see Bo go into action.
